About the Show

Amelia is delighted to share a selection of her work at the Queens Borough Hall in Kew Gardens, NY.

In May of 2010, Amelia's first solo exhibition entitled "Amelia's Birds" opened at Art at First Gallery – First Presbyterian Church in Manhattan. On display were twenty-four limited edition photographs which Amelia took during the preceeding winter in her hometown of Long Island City, NY. One viewer commented that "she would never again look at a seagull the same way."

In September, "Amelia's Birds" returned home and were on display in her second solo show. "Photos by Amelia" opened on September 24th at Ten10Studios, 10-10 47th Road in Long Island City, NY (www.Ten10Studios.com). Along with a few of the birds, Amelia shared a selection of her other works including photographs of a myriad of animals that she had taken in the spring and summer.

Inspired by her profound love of animals, Amelia's photographs take us to the heart of her passion. In her photos, we often find ourselves face-to-face with a creature who seems as curious about us as we are about him. At other times, her work allows us to share one of her subject's more private moments. From quirky personifications to natural idiosyncrasies, Amelia captures her animal friends with a child's eye and an "old soul."

She is a girl of few words, but her photographs speak eloquently. She says she wants to "hold on to the cuteness, the curiosity, and the character." With compositions that display a surprising and elegant balance of elements and detail, pattern and color, light and dark, Amelia conveys the essence of her chosen subject.

A select group of Amelia's photos will be on display in the Reception Lobby of the Queens Borough President's Office. The exhibit opened on Thursday, October 7, 2010 and will continue through January, 2011.
